I’ve said it before, but my friends and I used to sit around our crappy 13″ TV for hours playing NBA Jam on the SNES, so I’m really looking forward to this iteration of the franchise simply because it holds such a huge link to my younger years. How much am I looking forward to it? Enough to want to show you the snazzy, brand-spanking new, hot-off-the-presses box art above, that’s how much. You’re right, I’m not much into sports titles these days, but I think this one will hold my interest for a while.
As if the box art wasn’t enough, we have an official release date, as well – October 5, 2010 – for the Wii only at the moment. That’s a ways off yet, but I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait. After all, we’ve waited this long, right?
